1996 4runner

Asked by Jan 04, 2009 at 05:07 PM about the 1996 Toyota 4Runner 4 Dr SR5 SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am trying to locate the reason why I don't have a passing gear anymore.  It sputters and loses power when I step on it. When I let off the gas it resumes speed and acts normal.  It is also worse the warmer my car gets, when cold it seems to have a passing gear but only for that moment.
Thank you

It sounds to me like you need to have your transmission rebuilt.
